When I was a kind, its my mom that i call whenever I want someone to listen to me...But now, its my boyfriend that i call whenever i have a problem, i am sad, i am happy, i have an illness, i succeeded, i failed.I want to share all my life with him...He is the greatest gift that i have received in my life, aside from my family.

I have a friend who is more like a sister, as we have been friend for over 40 years. She is the first person I ring, and the same goes for her. In fact, often, we will ring each other, and one of us will say, 'I was just about to call you, as I really need to talk about something.' We calm each other, and we know each other so well we can almost always suggest a solution to the problem.

Well, we have a lot in common, and we work at our friendship, keeping in touch and always making time for each other. We've been through a lot together as well. I don't know where the years have gone, really. Inside, we're still teenagers. A good friend is like a good book - well worth keeping and revisiting often.

hi zhizho the first person I would call if I needed someone to listen to me would be my son,or if he is not available I will always turn to my best friend Nelda. She has never let me down. In fact I need to email her right now with a slight problem.

If i need someone to listen to me, i call my cousin. Although i know he can not help me, but i am calling him and tell what i want to say. I felt comfortable talking to him and tell about me, what makes me sad or disappointed or mad. Even in some days that i need to communicate to my other cousin i ask his help to communicate and i am thankful that even we do not have regular communication but call and i am the one initiating the call he is still there to extend his time to me.

Wow. That's really touching. As for me, when i have a problem, I normally keep it to myself, especially when I get upset. I don't want to talk to anybody because I have trouble controlling my emotions (I'm pretty emotional). But thing is, my boyfriend always notices when there's something wrong or when there's something bothering me. And most of the time, I end up opening up to him. I'm really fortunate to have my boyfriend as my best friend as well. He's very understanding and he's always there to listen to me, may it be a sad story, a happy moment, or even when I'm really really frustrated. He just seems to buffer my emotions. And I think that it's really great to have somebody that you can talk to because it's not easy to keep things bottled up inside of you. If you don't want to talk, at least you'll have someone to just sit with you until you feel better - this is how i learn to develop trust. Knowing that that someone will sit by you and even when you don't say a word, he/she understands you. :)
